I’m joining in on all the excitement surrounding the launch of Lisa Cook’s new book; Delicious Crochet Shawls, 21 stylish crochet shawls. Did you see the Peaches and Cream shawl that @angelala242 shared on Instagram yesterday? Gorgeous, isn’t it!
All of September you’ll have seen gorgeous photos and projects from instagrammers and bloggers all over the world sharing their love for this new book and I’m no different.
I decided to make the cover girl shawl, Berry Lime Pie, using a skein from my stash (gorgeous 4ply yarn from one of my fave indie dyers, Vanessa at My Creative Garage).
Because this is a single skein pattern, it’s the perfect size for a small person, and I just happen to have the perfect small person on hand to model it!
I love the open stitches and the shape. This particular pattern worked up very quickly. It could easily be done during a long car trip or a flight.
I thoroughly recommend this book, it is filled with patterns for beginner through to advanced crocheters, with extensive written instructions and outstanding charts and the sweet eats theme is just a lot of fun.
I also loved that I could stash dive to make my shawl; sometimes it can be so frustrating when you find a pattern you love, but are missing a ball or two, or just don’t have the right weight in the right colour. As if I need an excuse to go yarn shopping, but still!
And here’s another look at @angelala’s Peaches and Cream:

How lucky was I to be asked by Lisa @lisasattik to be a part of her book tour for her #deliciouscrochetshawls book 😀 With so many beautiful shawls it was really a difficult choice but I chose Peaches and Cream as it was a lighter shawl perfect for cool Spring evenings. Easy to understand instructions along with diagrams make this achievable even for novice crocheters! I used #crazyzauberball for the body of the shawl and trimmed it with #bendigowoollenmillscotton Well done Lisa on an absolutely beautiful book! ❤️🌟😘😘 Next up on the book tour is the fabulous @miss__neriss 🌸🌸 #deliciouscrochetshawlsbooktour #tuvapublishing #lisacookdesigns
